Ealing Repair cafe was started by Mary and other volunteers to teach and encourage people to mend clothes by patching and darning. Ealing Repair Cafe over 3 years ago and Mary kept it going through the pandemic. We have monthly meetups around Ealing Broadway and helping other groups around West London and the UK set up similar groups. Mary wants lots more people caring and mending for their clothes.
